Has a big family been keeping you away from Land Rover’s SUV, Discovery Sport? Well, worry no more. Now you can enjoy the off-roading capabilities of this British luxury brand with your full family as Land Rover has announced that the new compact SUV arrives as standard with 5+2 seating in the UK.
The outer layer of the vehicle, the camouflage reveals, that the Discovery Sport will in fact have two seats in the third row, enhancing its versatility and appeal as a compact, family SUV. Prototype cars sporting the new camouflage design left Halewood, UK, where the Discovery Sport will be manufactured, to embark on final testing and development activity across several continents.
Expressing his views on the upcoming SUV, Gerry McGovern, Design Director and Chief Creative Officer for Land Rover said, “As you would expect from a Discovery, the versatile Discovery Sport will feature 5+2 seating in the UK, offering spacious load space and configurable seating, while still retaining a more compact footprint than traditional 5-seat SUVs.”
The New Discovery Sport compact SUV will go on sale complementing the existing Discovery in 2015.
